This past week, the Utah Libraries Association hosted their annual conference where 5 EHSL Faculty lead workshops, gave presentations, and won awards!

According to Utah Governor, Gary R. Herbert, ULA provides “ its members with opportunities for library leadership, professional growth, networking, and community service…”

From this, we are excited to announce the EHSL participants in the 2017 ULA conference:

Workshop: Adventures in the scientific method: Turning your library into a lab

Given by Christy Jarvis MLIS, AHIP, Erin N. Wimmer MA, MLIS

In this interactive workshop, facilitators encourage librarians to draw on the “science” of the Library Science degree to think like a scientist. Discussion of the scientific method and its application to both real life and library scenarios will help librarians re-frame their perspective on experimentation. Participants will be empowered to apply the scientific method in a way that ensures their success. Facilitators will invite participants to share the results of their experiments at ULA 2018.

Presentation:Activate, Collaborate and Educate: Health Outreach and Programming in Your Community

Given by John Bramble MLIS, Claire Hamasu MLS, Trish Hull, Emily Underwood, Stacy M. Vincent

This 50 minute presentation will provide an overview of ideas you can use to conduct health information outreach and create health programs for libraries. Participants will learn how to integrate resources from the National Library of Medicine (NLM) and other reputable agencies to introduce community members in fun and engaging ways. Examples of programs for children, teens, adults and/or seniors using NLM and other National Institutes of Health center and office resources will be shared.

Award:  2017 Utah Library Association Distinguished Service Award presented to Jean P. Shipman (stay tuned for details on this award!)
